Looking for Younique Liquid Foundation?…Join the Club

Update: there’s newly-updated information on the Touch Foundation in this exciting post here! Though still on “backorder”, you CAN order your Younique Liquid Foundation in the Stroke of Beauty collection (which is awesome!!)

Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation

Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation - Younique by TheaAre you looking for Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation for yourself as a gift for someone else?

Well then, join the club, because many of the ten different shades are completely out of stock.

Since joining Younique as a presenter and sponsor in November of 2014, I have seen many products launch, but we’d always just been known for the 3D mascara (Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+) which is fine. Sure we sell more than fifteen thousand of them a day, that’s great, but we have so many other wonderful products that many people never seem to get to because they just stick with the mascara…

So finally that has actually changed – with one of our newer products the Touch Liquid Foundation.

It’s the first product since I’ve joined – which has actually RIVALED the 3D mascara in popularity!

In the past few months, I’ve had several emails asking about the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation and when certain shades will be back in stock.

Unfortunately, the news is not brilliant,…The honest answer is – “I don’t know – no one does.”

The frustrating fact that this product has been out of stock for momths now – is largely due to the multitudes of videos that have been doing the rounds about the product.

It has caused such a huge demand for the liquid foundation…that Younique can’t keep it in stock.

Liquid Foundation in Stock?

Younique Touch Foundation
For the US and Australia – it’s worse news – none is available to order. Yes, it seems that we have become victims of our success.

You will find out more information about when Younique’s Liquid Foundation will be back in stock on the backorder page of our website.

I apologise, on behalf of Younique, for not having more of this super popular product in stock. As you might imagine, the lighter colours do seem to be going fast – so at the point of writing this post in December, the lighter shades like Scarlet, Organza and Velour are all unavailable. Also Satin and Cashmere and Velvet are also unavailable.

If you were considering any of the other colours, I’d buy them fast in case they go out of stock for several months too. Also if you’re getting it, I would have recommend also buying the powder puff brush for assisting you in the application process but due to popular demand, it too is out of stock until March of 2016. You could try grabbing the Blending Buds though, at least they are in stock right now!

Here’s a line from an email, from a woman called Sharon, that I received tonight:

“Am looking for Velour.  My daughter says this is the best foundation she has ever had!!”

 That simple testimonial for the Younique Liquid Foundation made me smile. It is pretty great. Don’t just take my word for it, look at the fact 60% of them are sold out!

I’m planning on shooting my own video using the Liquid Foundation, on my 80+ year old father – but until I do – watch this one, it’s kind of funny! 🙂

Alternatives to the Younique Liquid Foundation

If you can’t get our Liquid Foundation, we do have some other products that I highly recommend like the:

If you want to reserve or order any of our face products please just reach out to me here. I can keep you posted. Otherwise if you totally can’t wait, then do pick up that Stroke of Beauty collection and you will get your foundation sooner than everyone else! Besides, it’s awesome collection, I tell you!

Thea’s 12 Days of Younique – Day 3

Thea’s 12 Days – Day 3

Hello and welcome (back) to Thea’s 12 Days of Younique – Day 3 is upon us. Today’s Younique product choice is perfect for those of us who like a sun-kissed look to our face. It’s called Beachfront and comes in three shades

This natural bronzer can be worn on your face or even your lips – talk about beach kissed in every sense of the word! They are half matte and half shimmer which makes you absolutely glow.

Thea's 12 Days of Younique - Day 3 - Beachfront Bronzer

All you need to do is apply a little bit of bronzer with a powder puff brush, or similar, and dab it on your face – wherever you would like a bit of a golden glow – year round. Incidentally. this product would work as well for men as it would women.

Thea’s 12 Days of Younique – Day 2

Illuminate Clean (or Clear) CleanserWelcome back to another day of Thea’s 12 Days of Younique (Christmas, Holidays, Spotlight) whatever you want to call it. Last year it was of Christmas but this year I thought I’d be more general to those who are not ones who partake in Christmas…

12 Days – Day 2

For today, I thought I’d highlight a simple product that I use every day, and you know what, it’s just as relevant for men as it is the ladies – it’s the Illuminate Clean for normal/dry skin (or Clear for Oily skin).

“Made with Horse Chestnut, Ginkgo Biloba, and Super Leaf Extracts. For normal/dry skin.”

What are Illuminate’s Ingredients?

As I am sure you care about your skin and what goes on it, I thought you might like to know the list of ingredients in our naturally based cleanser.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, Behenyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Cocoyl Hydrolyzed Amaranth Protein, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Bark Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Plantago Lanceolata Leaf Extract, Betula Alba (Birch) Bark Extract, Nymphaea Coerulea (Blue Lotus) Flower Extract, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract, Gluconolactone, Alcohol, Citric Acid, Alcohol Denat., Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Calcium Gluconate, Sodium Metabisulfite, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Benzoate

I’ll be honest with you, I’d become lazy and complacent when it came to skin care over the last few years (ok, decades). This cleanser though has become a daily ritual for my skin. I just have it in my shower and as I am showering every day – I clean my face in less than a minute, and my skin looks and feels better than ever! Don’t just take my word for it, try it out yourself and if you don’t love it too, then take advantage of Younique’s 14-day Love it Guarantee!!

Two Other Reminders:

1) I can’t recommend the December Kudos highly enough. You could get the Splurge Cream Eye Shadow set of 3 – and keep the FREE eye liner for yourself for being such a good friend or family member.

2) You can now buy Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers (in the UK 0ther areas by request)

Finally just in case you missed it, you can find my 12 Days – Day 1″ here.

Thea’s 12 Days of Younique – Day 1

12 Days of Younique!

Welcome to my “Thea’s 12 Days of Younique” for 2015. While I did a very similar thing last year – this year we’ve released so many new, fabulous Younique products that it’s definitely worthy of doing it again…

And heck, there may even be some “repeat products” featured over the next twelve days…I’m not 100% sure. I’ve mapped out more than half. We’ll start small today.

Thea’s 12 Days – Day 1

So today is simply The Moodstruck Precision Pencil in Polished.

If you fancy something different than the usual (e.g. black or brown) then go for this. Polished is s a frosted sort of colour – white with a pale blue. It goes on so silky smooth (just as all of our liners do – lip and eye).

But there is something that just rocks my world when I wear Polished (on the top and bottom of the eyes!) Thea's 12 Days of Younique - Day 1 - Polished

If you check back tomorrow I’ll aim to feature another fabulous product here on Younique by Thea.

If you’re interested in shopping anything featured in my next 12 Days, the please shop this party link.

Also there still a few weeks to get a FREE Liquid Eye Liner in our December Kudos – only while supplies last! I’ve already picked it up twice because as you may be aware – I do love the Splurges.

Check out Day 2 of my 12 Days here…

December Kudos – One Week In

Younique December Kudos

Do you fancy picking up a FREE brand new Liquid Eye Liner? You can’t even buy these babies yet, but you can get one if you buy a set of 3 Splurge Cream Eye Shadows in this month’s December Kudos.

Frankly this special offer is so good that I picked it up twice myself already (one for the US and one for the UK!!)

Besides as it’s so close to Christmas, I reckoned that I could give the Splurges away as gifts for family and friends. Well it makes perfect sense since Elegant (pictured top left) is just about my fave Younique product.

December Kudos - Splurge Cream Eye Shadow with Liquid Eye Liner
These Splurge Cream Eye Shadows are amazing and there are colours to suit all shades of peepers! I recommend the Elegant which is a shimmery beige and will look good on any eye lids! As my friend Heather says “It’s idiot proof – you just can’t put this stuff on wrong.” And you know what? She’s right! It is…But I also recommend Dainty.

Shop My December Kudos Party

My Week in Younique – Finally, Blue Status

Thea Newcomb is Blue Status - Younique by Thea

Welcome back to another instalment of My Week in Younique where this week I talk about my team’s achievements, how to get the 3D Fiber Lashes+ just in time for the holidays, the December Kudos (which is awesome by the way!) and my biggest news of all is that Black Friday made me BLUE status (Finally)!!!

Big High Five to Helen

Join Helen's team & be apart of #theAteamOnce again, my sole Aussie recruit, Helen, has kicked-ass. I’ve just noticed that two presenters signed up on my mother’s birthday and Helen was one. That has to be a great omen! Helen (pictured here with wee Amy) smashed sales in November, hitting Yellow status and outselling more than the next top selling presenter by more than double.

For that reason I’d really like to help her build her team up and reach the Fast Start promotion.

So for the next few enquiries I get here, I’ll have them sign up under Helen. They’ll still be a part of my team (entitled to any FREE Blogging or Social Media coaching) but they’ll signed up under Helen as their sponsor! Win/win as this gal’s going places!!

The trick I’m learning with Younique is to help your recruits build their teams. We are nothing without our teams. So it’s not just about having Younique recruits, it’s about formulating a team.

Personally speaking I’ve had lots of recruits in the first year, over 20, but 50% of whom haven’t done a thing…

Also worth mentioning is our next team presenter to promote up to Yellow since Helen was Louise. Well done girl!!

Also a big shout out to my fellow Cali Gals – Tina and Teri who are inching their way toward the Yellow promotion too! They may even make it this month collecting their pay-bump, up to 25%, just in time for Christmas.

More New Younique Product News: Buy the December Kudos!

So one of the most exciting things to happen this week is the announcement of the new December Kudos. Not only is it my fave product the Splurge Cream Eye Shadows but if you buy a set of three (and as luck would have it there are three new colours this month) – you get a FREE, brand new product – the Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eye Liner…How amazing is that? Of course I had to buy mine last night as I always aspire to have every Younique product in stock. (Any excuse right?)

3D Fiber Lashes+: One Set Left!

Young Molly Rocks the 3D Mascara on her right eye!I currently am down to my last set of 3D Fiber Lashes in stock. Sold one this afternoon to a woman in Glasgow who phoned up last night needing a set for a present for her sister-in-law. We met, she paid me her £23 and received her 3D lashes and a FREE greeting card too.

Though I say I am down to my last set, there are five more sets (plus one from the Black Friday deal) that have been dispatched so do hope they arrive tomorrow or Saturday.

If you’re anywhere in the UK, for the next week, I can save you some money on shipping and you’ll receive them quicker but after next weekend I’ll be off for the holidays so act fast! To be fair if you needed some 3D lashes plus over the festive period I’m sure I’ll still sort you out. So yes, the choice is up to you whether you wish to buy direct from me (to save time and money) or order them online 24/7.

Younique Black Friday Made Me Blue

Finally, as many will know, I have been a Younique presenter since the company launched in the UK on November 1, 2014. I had not tried the products, just took a chance on the £69 kit start up cost and hoped for the best.Thea Newcomb - Officially a Blue Status Presenter with Younique

Well, as a social media trainer, Younique was a good fit for me. I already was on every channel there is (just about) and I know the basics of SEO as well.

So off I went and quickly qualified as White status, then Yellow, hit the “Fast Start” bonus and Pink…where I stalled for a year.

Younique is a fun of course, but often a very frustrating business. It’s definitely not for anyone who is just hoping to make a fast buck (or pound or euro). If I was only in it for the money I’d have quit nine months ago. It’s also not for anyone who is easily put off by other people’s negativity (family, friends, Younique haters etc). If you’re someone who isn’t of strong mind you’ll probably give up.

All Younique Levels - White, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple and BlackBut thankfully this week – thirteen months of tenacity paid off and I finally reached Blue Status with Younique! I’ve had a lot of people asking me what that actually means. Well for one it means I’m halfway up the Younique ladder (or so). Four more levels to go – Green, Orange, Purple and Black.

It also means I’ll make 4% on my company sales (the downline below me). Looking forward to that first Blue payment soon!

I will be honest with you – I was delighted to reach blue at 11:57pm Sunday night. It happened as I was on my weekly training call with my team – e.g. Kelly. She got to witness first hand as I almost started to cry with excitement, relief and a few other emotions. Though I have to be honest you, I’m proud of hitting Blue with its 4000 sales but right around now Green is looking impossible. Do hope it doesn’t take another thirteen months, like it did to reach blue status, to promote to the next level – GREEN!!

Only time will tell…
